KidneyCAN is proud to open registration for the 3rd Annual Kidney Cancer Research Summit. KCRS is a meeting focused on basic science research, translational research, and clinical kidney cancer research. This meeting is fueled by the ideas and research funded through the Department of Defense CDMRP-KCRP awards.

The goal for KCRS is to present the important, innovative research funded by the KCRP. We also aim to connect researchers from around the world to share their work.

Join us on October 7 and 8 for this dynamic, interactive meeting focused on the latest basic science, translational, and clinical research in kidney cancer.

“It’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever participated in. We’re bringing together clinicians, physician scientists, and bench scientists to talk about kidney cancer research. The goal is to invigorate the science and spur breakthroughs.”
